The library is pleased and excited to announce the return of the Musical Moments recital series for 2021 – 22.
The series will resume on Friday, September 17, starting at 7:30 p.m. and will feature Harpist Donna Benier Taylor. The concert will take place in the library’s reading room, is free and open to the public, and will last approximately an hour.
The program is titled "Farewell, Summer," easy listening, pop and Celtic songs that depict the sights of the season. Mrs. Taylor will perform on a full sized pedal harp. Information on harp construction and the technique of playing will be explained.
Donna’s repertoire contains an extensive collection that spans decades of favorites and updated with current music. Business cards will be available for those interested in engaging her to perform for any special events.
Donna has a limited number of CDs available for sale for $10 before or after the event. Her contact information is www.HarpByDonna.com (585-671-6643) firstname.lastname@example.org
Based on NYS lifting the majority of its COVID restrictions for small indoor musical events, the Library Board has voted to remove most of them. The only restriction that will be followed is that unvaccinated individuals and children under twelve will be required to wear a mask. However, all attendees are encouraged to wear masks. Seating will be the same as with past concerts, with no social distancing requirement. A volunteer will be stationed at the door to greet individuals and point out the vaccine/mask requirements.
The MM series will also feature the following recitals: Classical Guitarist Ken Meyer (October 8, 2021) , Bassoonist Matthew Shubin (November 5, 2021), Flutist Paul Schliffer and Pianist Meg Heaton (April 8, 2022), and the Onyx clarinet quartet (May 5, 2022).
Musical Moments is supported by the Foundation for Geneva Public Library. The series is possible thanks to sustaining financial gifts from Jane and Bill Crumlish and the efforts of volunteers. Click here for information on how to volunteer for and support the Foundation.
